Web Brand Standards

The University goes to great lengths to ensure the on-campus experience for visitors is outstanding. From our beautiful, scenic campus to the friendliness of our staff, Notre Dame’s reputation for excellence is well known.

This reputation for excellence carries over into the online experience. Visitors to Notre Dame’s websites outnumber our campus visitors 20 to 1, and they should expect the same commitment to excellence. Poor online experiences reflect poorly upon the University.

As such, the University’s web brand standards are established to ensure web users have a consistent, quality online experience. All subdomain approvals are subject to web brand standards.

The details of the web brand standards are available on OnMessage, where the University’s brand standards are outlined. All designers, developers, and communications staff with intent to publish a new website should review the brand standards before beginning.
